AgileWorks Romania

AgileWorks Remote Open Space


Last year, after the Agile Lean Europe (ALE) conference, Franck Depierre had the idea to start a Remote Open Space to connect the different communities of practice of Europe, in the spirit of the ALE Network. Franck called this concept xALEc, or The Extreme ALE Club.

Inspired by his initiative we initiate the same concept to unite the AgileWorks Romanian groups: Bucharest, Timisoara, Cluj-Napoca, IașiSibiu, Targu-Mures.



You have some questions and you would like to find answers.

You want to share your ideas to others.

You want to be exposed to new ideas

Each attendee makes a short introduction.

We add to this Google Document the topics that we would like to talk about.

We vote the topics we want talk by dot voting on the Google Document.

We chat about the voted topics and we want to keep our ideas on the subject.

After 30 minutes we stop and we draw some conclusions.

We write the conclusions in the google document.

We use Twitter to radiate the ideas we have come up with by using the twitter tag #awros

The first hangout will be on Tuesday 6th of November 2012.

4.10.2011, Code Duplication

One of the most important principles of simple design is to remove duplication. But what is duplication? What types of duplication are out there? Let's explore together the topic of duplication and look at some code samples to see how many types of duplication we can notice.

This meetup will be about code. If you don't write code, you might not be interested.


29.09.2011 – Real Life Agile Engagements – Discussion

Hi All!

I'd like to share some of our experience in working with a set of customers that are some of the largest financial institutions in the world. The interesting fact is that many of them demand agile development, are very aware of agile, have hired agile coaches and are moving towards agile on an enterprise scale (workforces of sometimes thousands of people).

I can give you a little history of how agile came into the picture for these companies, what are the advantages they see in agile and how a complex agile engagement in a complex environment works and the various ways in which Endava teams have dealt with it and the lessons we've learned.

When and where: Thursday, 29.09.2011, 18:30, Endava Iasi Strada Palat 3E, Palas, United Business Center, Etaj 5, Iasi

Teste bune, teste rele

De ce să scriem unit teste? Testarea automată încetinește ritmul de dezvoltare! Am scris teste, dar acum mai mult ne încurcă.


Acestea sunt doar câteva din întrebările legate de testele scrise de dezvoltatori. Soluția? Să înțelegem ce înseamnă teste bune și ce înseamnă teste rele.


Următoarea întâlnire din București (24 august 2011) pe teme de Software Craftsmanship va fi despre aceste întrebări. Vom discuta despre principiile de urmat pentru a avea teste bune, dar mai ales vom citi teste și vom discuta pe marginea lor. Ne vom gândi care sunt problemele și cum am putem îmbunătăți testele.


La finalul acestei conversații sper că toți participanții vor înțelege ceva mai mult despre ce  înseamnă cod de testare bun, și își vor dori să exerseze mai mult. Și, cine știe, poate ne și arată ceea ce au învățat într-una din întâlnirile viitoare...


29.07.2011 – Improving Our Agility

So we found out that we aren't very good at SCRUM (at least that's what the test from the last meeting said). Then what can we do to improve ourselves?

When and where: 29.07.2011, 18:15, Embarcadero - World Trade Center building, Anastasie Panu, 26, Iasi
